Berea College - Comments and Student Experiences|
Housing is mediocre, and so is the food. You're required to have both though, unless you're married or a parent. The most difficult thing is that you're not allowed to work anywhere outside of the college, but the paychecks you receive from your mandatory labor position at the school typically only bring in about $120 to $145 per MONTH.
Bottom line: if you want to go here, there will be NO fun parties, no ridiculous nights of booze fueled fun. If you want fun, freedom, and life experiences in addition to classes, look elsewhere. The most exciting thing to do here is study, and that's about all you'll be able to afford. Chances for better paying jobs etc. are minimal. You'll graduate with almost no debt though! Oh yeah, and if you're transferring from another school be prepared to become a freshman all over again. Berea is horrible about transfer credits.
